How To Choose The Best Air Compressor

Posted by Bapak at 2:04 AM

Choosing a good air compressor can be a daunting task especially considering all the choices one has. The best bet when you are considering the purchase of a compressor is to research several companies that manufacture compressors and try to choose one with reliable standards and top of the line merchandise. In order to do this you may invest a lot of time on the internet, where you can complete plenty of research in little or no time. After you find a reliable company to purchase from, you will need to look into other factors, such as, style, design, and dependability.

What type of job you have to do with the compressor will also make a big impact on what type of compressor you need. If you are running multiple applications with your compressor you may want to go with a double stacked compressor with two outlets, for air pressure to come out of. Roofing and painting are two applications that could make use of the double ports If you just intend on using the compressor in your garage and around the house then you would not need an extremely high powered unit, therefore the standard, stand alone, basic unit will make a good fit for these jobs.

A quality air compressor will be constructed of premium materials, cast iron is probably the most durable and widely used material when constructing compressors. There is a very good reason for this. Cast iron is an extremely durable, tensile, metal that can withstand extremely high internal pressure. If you plan on moving the compressor often then the wheelbarrow compressor would be a good fit. It can travel with you anywhere you go, and can manoeuvre in even the tightest positions. Many times, the job requires mobility and if this is the case, there is no better choice than the wheelbarrow compressor.

There are three types of power sources used for compressors: electricity, gasoline, and natural gas. When one is working in an enclosed space, using a gasoline powered compressor can be hazardous, therefore, depending on where you will be working you may have to buy an electric powered compressor although the power output is significantly less. If power is an issue, most companies provide both single phase and two phase electric compressors.

In any event, the choices are many, and most likely factors like purpose and practicality will guide you into a good choice for your compressor.
